Top Fun Ways To Be Creative With a Video Camera

True, decent video editing software will help a lot, with most newbies tending to go for Windows Movie Maker alternatives, but a great idea, a bit of free time, a sharp eye for cinematography and either an expensive DSLR or your smartphone, and you should be ready to start filming. If you’re stuck for inspiration, then think about some of these options for using a video camera and who knows? Maybe your video will be trending on YouTube by this time next week.

It’s safe to say that we all know how to watch videos on YouTube – not to mention giving our disapproval for some– but did you ever think of how those videos were actually made? Even if the video is bad, there’s often a lot of thought and effort put into them. However, many of us think we could do a better job at filming videos, so why don’t you try? It’s easy to be creative with a video camera because today’s smartphones all come with the option to record film, so really, the only thing holding you back from making a video is yourself.

Vlogging

Definitely the easiest option on this list, as vloggers generally work alone and simply film themselves talking! Of course, it’s not that easy, since there is a skill to talking in front of the camera, but popular vloggers (video bloggers) like PewDiePie, Jenna Marbles, and Zoella, have made a nice living out of this! Some review products, some discuss the news or current events, whilst others give tips on makeup or playing video games.

Sketches

Think you’re funny? Then comedy sketch videos might be for you! You don’t have to be a member of Monty Python or Saturday Night Live to produce comedy sketches, so long as you know how to write jokes and ideally have some hilarious friends to join you. Start brainstorming some funny situations and either work on a script or completely improvise. Around five minutes is the most common length for sketch comedy videos, but going to 10 minutes is not completely out of the ordinary.

Travel documentary

If you’re a regular globetrotter, then making a travel documentary is an awesome way to showcase to the world just how creative you can be with a camera. It’s so easy to find info on the main tourist attractions, so that’s why it’s often the small things about a location which really interest people. Look around you and try to find what no one else is observing. It could simply be hundreds of three-second clips edited into one five-minute video, but whatever you choose, try to be different.

Tricks

Filming yourself performing magic tricks, skateboard tricks, amazing basketball shots, etc., is easily becoming one of the most popular types of video on YouTube. Some channels can actually make a living out of regularly performing amazing tricks via millions of subscribers and even sponsorship deals. If you can perform cool tricks, then you’ll get discovered on YouTube.

Life hacks

In the last few years, people simply love to ‘hack’ as many products as they can, which is essentially to change the use of an item for what it was originally intended for. Some are useful, some are really pointless but fun, but if you know of a way to use toothpaste other than cleaning teeth, or uses for Coca-Cola other than drinking, then film it and get it online! Life hacks are often wacky, but popular.
